Beads of Courage
Supplied cookies and brownies for Beads of Courage’s Courage in Motion Dance-a-thon.
Cookies and brownies for the 14th annual Sew A Thon where dedicated volunteers come together to sew cloth duffle bags for children in the care of Child Protective Services. Before, children’s belongings were packed into black plastic garbage bags when they were removed from their home or when they were moving from placement to placement while in the system. The plastic bags sent the message that the children’s belongings were trash. The beautiful cloth duffle bags give the children dignity. And they love the bags! Even when not used for moving, the bags are used to hold laundry, extra clothes, toys, and some kids even use them for pillow cases. We have heard from caseworkers and from children who are not out of CPS care that they still have their bags.

Mended Little Hearts, Tucson
CfC was requested to make heart-shaped cookies for an informational event at the University of Arizona for Mended Little Hearts.
Note: At the Candlelighters Dream Night prom, we met the photographer (Sherri Graves of Sherri Graves Photography & Design) who took the picture of this little girl shown in these photos that was holding one of our heart cookies at the Mended Little Hearts event. She told us that this little girl had been tube fed through her stomach her entire life, due to heart issues and surgeries, but just recently had been cleared to eat through her mouth. Sherri said that at the event she took one of our cookies and gave it the little girl to get her picture taken with. Then, she asked the little girl if they could share the cookie. Sherri broke the cookie in half and gave half to the little girl and half for herself.Sherri took a
bite of her cookie and ate it. Then the little girl took a bite of her cookie and ate the rest of the cookie all by herself. It was her first bite of food through her mouth!
